Resources found in iOS 10 suggest cellular data toggle possibly coming to Control Center

iOS 10 contains tons of great features that Apple talked about in the keynote and we've already seen some hidden features that were spotted in iOS 10 beta 1. New features aside, many people have been digging through iOS 10 beta in search for unannounced features, or upcoming devices.

It looks like there is another idea of what might be coming in a future iOS 10 beta: the sought-after cellular data toggle in Control Center. Thanks to iOS developer Andrew Wiik.

Cellular data switch meets Control Center
It appears that sooner than later we might be able toggle cellular data on and off directly from iOS 10’s revamped Control Center. The button would be placed in the top row as a round icon alongside the existing Airplane Mode, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Do Not Disturb and Rotation Lock toggles.

For those interested in the technical side of things, a new framework has been discovered in iOS 10, named “ControlCenterUI”. Inside of this framework is a class named “CCUICellularDataSetting”. When hacked to run inside of the iOS Simulator, it shows what amounts to an unmistakable placeholder.

Currently, the icon itself is missing, but changes colors when activated.
So what do you think ? It would be a great thing to see cellular data toggle in the Control Center.
